SOCCER

Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick is confident he made the right decision in subbing Cristiano Ronaldo in last night's 3-1 win over Brentford.

United won the Premier League game in London with goals by Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

Ronaldo was visibly unhappy at being benched, but Rangnick says it was a tactical move:

Steven Bergwijn scored twice in stoppage time as Tottenham Hotspur came from 2-1 down to defeat Leicester City 3-2, at the King Power Stadium.

It's a win which sends Spurs fifth in the table.
